Good morning: What are you worth? A recently published article stated that the trace elements which make up the human body are only worth about a dollar. Of course, a life is more than just a combination of water, oxygen, and minerals. But can a value be determined for a specific life? Are some lives…

Good morning: If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? Some set a goal of losing weight or gaining muscle tone. Others wish to be more organized or less stressed. Would you want to be more outgoing and brave, a better student, a more diligent employee? People try to reinvent themselves…

Good morning: What would you think of a dishwasher which cleaned the outside of cups and bowls to a spotless, germ-free shine, but did nothing with the inside? The dishes would look great stacked in the cupboard, but who would want to use them with leftovers from previous meals stuck to the inside? Jesus once…

Good morning: When I was in college I had a conversation with someone who said that he didn’t have an opinion regarding Christianity. He wasn’t going to take “sides,” he told me. His thought was that if he didn’t come down either for or against Christianity or any other faith, he wouldn’t have to worry…

Good morning: It seemed like a good idea at the time. A man wanted to drain the gas tank of his lawn mower at the end of the season. Why not, he thought, grab the shop vac and use it to quickly empty the tank? It worked beautifully for the first few seconds. But just…

Good morning: In the early 1990’s there was a phenomenally successful ad campaign designed around the phrase: “I wanna be like Mike,” referring to the basketball superstar Michael Jordan.

Good morning: “All-you-can-eat buffet—FREE!” Any restaurant advertising that on their sign is guaranteed to get my attention and probably my business too. What could be better than to have a selection of everything from salad to soup to prime rib to decadent dessert from which to choose, and then to have as much as you…

Good morning: On Tuesday the Lord suddenly called longtime Messiah member, Marty Bernthal, home to Himself to receive the crown of glory Jesus won for all of us on the cross. On Wednesday the news broke that a veteran Milwaukee police officer had been shot and killed in the line of duty. It makes one…

Good morning: Sooner or later it’s bound to happen that a friend will let you down or frustrate you in some way. Maybe it’s the third time this month that you rearranged your schedule to get together and for the third time the friend canceled at the last minute. Do you ever think, “Who needs…

Good morning, There are times when it’s wise not to say certain things. It would be foolish and dangerous to yell “Fire!” in a dark, crowded theater when there was no fire. Say something about a bomb in the airport screening line, and you will quickly be taken into custody for questioning. Make fun of…
